Western Gall Rust in the Lake States
Abstract:Western gall rust, Cronartium coleosporioides Arth. (Peridermium harknessii J. P. Moore), was found on jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) in Minnesota and Michigan. Jack pine seedlings grown in the greenhouse were successfully inoculated with aeciospores collected from infected pines with resultant formation of characteristic galls. Additional seedlings and Indian paintbrush (Castilleja coccinea L.) were also successfully inoculated with aeciospores produced on the galls formed on these seedlings.
